I had a dream last night where I met Paul and wished him the best of luck at arsenal and that I thought they'd do great. As a united supporter and spurs fan this disgusts me.

In other news I'm in downtown Chicago for a football game but the hotel room doesn't have NBC Sports. Hung over, but considering going to find a soccer bar near me.

Thanks for keeping traditions alive. I'll be back at it next weekend. In fact, I'll be in London for business with a work happy hour Friday. 90% chance of hangover

Yeah, I stopped drinking too early last night to be properly hung over.  My wife was giving me the stink-eye after beer 3 and no amount of pleading was working.

/Come on baby, I HAVE to be hungover for it to be a proper Fark Footy Saturday.  Especially after we were without last week

It is your FFPL report!

Round two saw the league increase to 48 players. The three new players scored 0, -20 and -40. Welcome noblehammer16, MNMarkPW and ocirats.

Not too late to join. Entering during Round 3 puts you only slightly behind average..

Search for our private mini-league: FCB76-PVA

The top four remains unchanged, The_Envoy retaining top spot with a healthy 90. Plenty of healthy scores this week in fact. At the bottom, dead_for_tax_reasons continues Operation Hollywood Accounting, decaying down to -75. Tom_the_servo_bit_me retains the all time depth record of a couple of hundred. Norfolking_Chance has tie broken into second to last somehow.

One quarter of the league is yet to break through the 0 point barrier.

Our median player is on 45 - cheesehead_dave and dietbubba take a bow.

Top score of the round is a highly respectable 170 by Scouser_Duck, with a very pleasing +90 from a 1-0 in the Norwich Vs Southampton game. Equally cheeky in respect of Banker placement was Thunderchild, showing off with a +90 haul from a 0-2 in the West Brom Vs Swansea game. Overall performance kept him at +115. Third top score was Hayward_Jablonski, who got there the hard way with only a +45 Banker on the very safe MCFC Vs Hull.

Lowest scores of the week go to a pair of Tottenham supporters - cameroncrazy1984 and ocirats, with -50/-40 respectively. Both made the mistake of putting their Bankers on Big Games.

Most rapid climber of the week was nathanjr, climbing 24 spots to 7th. Thunderchild rose 22. Chupacabra_Sandwich was up 18 having oriented himself after Round 1.

Falling we had dietbubba dropping 18 but clinging onto Page 1 whilst krej55 dropped a mighty 21 spots. He places immediately behind Obamartins who is heading up Page 2.

Only two players on Page 2 have anything of a BB. The_Envoy retains the Presidency of the Banker Bonus club and 5 players currently have the maximum possible BB.

Good call. I stupidly didn't bring my laptop so I can't even stream. I'm on my phone (new HTC one) typing this out.

Also I meant Ozil not Paul in my previous comment. Stupid auto correct

Yeah, round 2 was not good.  Barely hanging on near the top of the table

Depending on where you are in Chicago, The Globe Pub seems to be the #1 soccer bar in town

If you'd told me United would fail to score at all after being up one man, aside from the penalty, I'd have had a hard time believing that. Palace is defending really damn well.

Palace has been defending surprisingly well. Very disciplined, very few mistakes. United has at least one more goal in them, though.

2013-09-14 09:30:07 AM
I'm liking this kid Januzaj. He's not afraid to run at defenders, and that's exactly what United have been lacking.

I still have no idea why Young is on the pitch while Zaha is on the bench.

Why 4 minutes? The game's pretty much decided and there's not much in the way of stoppages this half. I'm betting it's Fergie's presence in the stadium.

Now I'm deeply annoyed - I switched my prediction from 2-0 to 3-0 this morning and its cost me 60 points. I've got to learn to trust my first instincts
 
2013-09-14 09:42:15 AM
Dammit, I put three nil instead of two. Thirty points instead of ninety
